If you’re looking for a new laptop to brighten up the long winter ahead, now’s your chance. Apple’s 15-inch MacBook Air with M2 chip is back at its lowest price since October Prime Day. The 256GB model is currently marked down to $1,049 from $1,299 — a 19 percent discount.
The $250 savings is also available on Apple’s 512GB 15-inch MacBook Air, with a 17 percent discount dropping its price to $1,249 from $1,499. While every color is on sale, the silver option is still a little pricier than its counterparts — available for $1,300 and $1,149 for the 512GB and 256GB models, respectively.
The 2023 15-inch MacBook Air came on the scene in June, and we were immediately big fans. In fact, we gave it a 96 in our review thanks to factors such as its excellent battery life, keyboard and (large) trackpad. The M2 chip also means it’s well-performing, and the six-speaker sound system — the 13-inch model only has four — produces high-quality sound.
The larger MacBook Air also has a 2,880 x 1,864 resolution, 500 nits of brightness and a 60Hz refresh rate. Sure, it’s missing some of the bells and whistles of the MacBook Pro, but considering that even the 14-inch Pro starts at $1,999, the savings are likely worth it.
